    2:1 ratio....Modify that to suit your individual needs. How much protein do you require in your diet? If you have your kcals in check this should not be a problem.

    I am 185 pounds at 14% bf and I use the 80g carb / 40g pro. Btw - 1 year ago I was over 34% bf. What made the biggest changes for me eating 5 to 8 times per day, consistent cardio of 45 mins to 1 hour 4 to 5 times a week. Diet and cardio are the holly grail to bf% loss. DO NOT SKIP MEALS. It will actual extend the time it takes. Work on building up lean mass - and use the smaller more frequent meals to speed up you metabolism and burn off that fat!

    Depending on your kcals for the day, you'll calculate the total # of cals for the shake, then make one-third from pro and two-thirds from carbs.

    My whey scoop says its 35-40g. I took two scoops of dextrose with that and it comes out to 1/2 cup.

    that tells me nothing cuz 35g of whey isnt the same as 35g of dextrose (it weighs more) 1/2cup of whey will not be the same as a 1/2 cup of dextrose
